Discounts: Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a student ID card

NOW THAT you’re a college student, you possess one item with power than you perhaps realized.

No, it’s not your coffeemaker. It’s your student ID card!

That’s right—flashing a student ID card can get you a discount at certain spots around town. But where are these mythical spots of goodwill and 10% discounts?

We did that work for you and called around to almost every spot in town we could think of to compile this list of discounts for you. At these places, showing a valid college student ID will get you the discount listed.

This list is not complete because both of us have phone anxiety, so if you know of a discount that isn’t listed here, let us know and we’ll add it in the online version.
